With close to 120 works drawn primarily from the Eli and Edye Broad collection, Los Angeles’ new contemporary art museum The Broad presents a comprehensive survey of the work of groundbreaking artist Cindy Sherman.
From early film stills to rear projections and films, the exhibition focuses primarily on the artist’s engagement with the stereotypes of 20th century popular film industry and of celebrity. Featuring as her own model playing out female stereotypes in a range of personas, environments and guises, the artist raises questions about identity, representation and the role of images in contemporary culture.
